Interesting that you chose not to use the local Avon rib dealer.

In hindsight that would have been the best idea but at the time we were impressed by the boat barnet had on disply at the boat show and they offered a better package than the loacal Avon dealer.

sounds it to me.
IIRC I bought genuine Yamaha cables for mine about three years ago - I think they were about 15 each. I replaced them after a few months with red teleflex ones(the first ones were too long so hard to move) which I am sure was about 40 for the pair (I think the "red ones" are mid range rather than "top of the range") and obviously they cost more the longer they are. My prices were just popping into the local chandler/engine repair shop not shopping around.

I have read a few posts praising them for the workmanship and customer service but I did not get this expierience from them.
Thanks for this - it will hopefully help other forum members.
Barnet Marine occasionally post on here, so we may get some reaction....

I have used eBay for Teleflex 33c supreme control cables in the past and found them to be far smoother than the standard 33c cables - but you do have to be careful that you are not exceeding the bend radius (6-8" from memory) and certainly not crushing them ! They seem to be about 30 for a 5m length, so unless you bought Teleflex extreme cables, then I think 50 is a little expensive ...

Its is well worth paying for some of the hi quality cables, I use the Teleflex Extreme ones and they are excellent and if you are having problems then they will really help.

Yep - I've got the same ones, but they didn't cost 100
